Hi-Noon: Starbucks Finally Going Wi-Fi

Finally! Starbucks is finally going to provide free wi-fi service at its beaucoup shops around the nation. On Facebook, Cindy re-posted a link about the move that 'll take place July 1. You can read it here (scroll down). Why did I use one of the few exclamation points in my literary arsenal? I spent an hour-plus last summer at a Starbucks near the Portland airport, trying to use the finicky AT&T system that requires occasional users who aren't registered to pay for a phone card that may or may not work. Mine didn't (despite being refunded a second card). And I didn't get my money back. I've never had such problems at Java on Fourth. 'Tis nice to see a trend-setter like Starbucks finally catching up with the other coffee shops.

Question: When and where did you last use wi-fi at a place other than your home?
